A true phenomenon in the cycling world, this Dutch brand has managed to leave a bold mark on an increasingly carbon-dominated market. With a focus on quality and efficiency, Van Nicholas bikes represent exceptionally good value for money when it comes to titanium frames.
Titanium’s unique properties make it the ideal material for designing parts and frames: high strength, low density, remarkable mechanical behaviour (flexibility), exceptional robustness and durability, but also incredible lightness.
Titanium doesn’t decompose: it neither rusts nor corrodes, regardless of the weather. Titanium is so resistant to corrosion that it doesn’t require treating or painting. What is more, all Van Nicholas frames carry a lifetime warranty.
But titanium’s undeniable main advantage is its “elastic behaviour”, which means that it can absorb road vibrations before they reach you, giving you exceptional riding comfort. Now that titanium bikes have been combined with specific tube geometries and shapes, their performance-to-comfort ratio has become their strong point.
